My private practice, Humankind Counselling & Psychotherapy, is based in the convenient and historic setting of the Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells. I am passionate about offering counselling and psychotherapy because so many of us struggle with our thoughts, our feelings, our behaviours, and our life predicament at some time in our lives. Not knowing how to overcome our difficulties can leave us feeling alone, vulnerable, anxious, depressed, angry or overwhelmed with a combination of those feelings. I believe counselling and psychotherapy helps. I hold that each of us possesses the inner strength and resources to overcome our struggles, but that it is from within a safe, warm, trusting and fully accepting relationship that we find the capacity to heal and grow. My aim is to provide you with that relationship. A relationship that allows you to open up, explore your most inner thoughts and feelings and in so doing better understand yourself and make positive changes. Past experience has included working within the NHS, with Fegans in Tunbridge Wells and with As You Are in Southwick.My previous career was in International Marketing, so I understand the stresses of working in high-pressure environments and indeed have worked with many clients who are struggling with work related issues.
